Oh, you come home one evenin'
To nothin' but the four walls
And then ya find your phone been disconnected
You can't even make no call

Ya hung out for your baby
Oh, an' she's not there
You look in the closet, buddy
An' you find it's all bare

Oh, that's what the blues is people
That's what the blues is all about
Well that's a hard pill you have to swallow, um!
When you find what the blues is all about

Now listen to this

I went out to my backyard
Ya know I whistled for my dog
He ran up under the house, people
Like he didn't even know me at all

Now I hadn't fed him in two or three days
An' he was lookin' kinda thin
Oh, when your dog turn his back on ya, buddy
You know ya haven't even got a friend

That's the blues, people
That's what the blues is all about
Oh it's a hard pill to swallow, um!
When ya find out what the blues is all about

Oh, look out! Uh!
Oh no! I think I got 'em!

I went out to my mail box
I got a bunch-a bills that I can't pay
I guess my wife been out shoppin' again
While I been at work all day

I see the man comin' with his tools
Now is he gonna cut off my water?
You know they got my gas yesterday
An' they comin' right back for the lines tomorrow

Ah, that's what the blues is people
That's what the blues is all about
Oh, that's a hard pill to swallow, buddy
When you find out what the blues is all about
